    Episode 28: Stray discussions

    We've been away for a little while to move and catch up on other life projects but we found the time to get together and record this discussion. Life has been busy but not so busy that we haven't played some recent releases and picked up some new hobbies.

    Fedora 36



    I finally ditched Windows and only have Fedora installed on my laptop
    I have Fedora installed to my 500gb ssd and I created a raid 0 between my 2 nvme drives to put all my games on.
    I had to fix a permission issue before I could install any games to the mount point. I set the permission on the btrfs subvolume to 770 so that my user and group have full access to the mount. I made sure to give no permissions to everyone so that it's a little more secure.
    After setting those permissions I could install all my games and play them.
    Jedi Fallen order works fine now I can pause the game and resume and it plays normally.
    Horizon zero dawn can now use dlss.
    One issue I am still having is very strange. I could open the steam flatpak via the app icon totally normally until I set my nvidia gpu as the primary active gpu. After that I now have to use the flatpak run com.valvesoftware.Steam command to start steam. When switching back to intel/nvidia or just intel gpu the app icon can start steam again.
    Wayland was a no go for any of my games so I am back on Xorg. Other than games though, wayland has come a long way and works with all my other applications.


    Nobara Project 36
    My attempt at upgrading failed. NP documented a fix to allow for a successful process but after completion there were too many issues with the nvidia kernel to make it worth sticking with the installation. I opted for reinstalling.
